hmm....
i'd be *quite* certain this never worked before given how your items are setup (but i'm willing to accept i could be wrong 8-)

here's how you can make those turn into the real "animated gifs" for your item
(and unfortunately it *is* a bit of a pain...)

if you have an item with identifier of "myIdentifier" (it's the thing after "/details/" -- so the item "http://www.archive.org/details/camels" is the identifer "camels"), then you want your uploaded video (or pick the one you want to show in search results if 2+ videos in the item)
to be named exactly that identifier, plus whatever relevant extension
(for example, "myIdentifier.mov")

That way, when we make the ".gif" for the video, it's named "myIdentifier.gif".

So you'd have to edit each item and make this happen, and then rederive. I can help with the rederiving if you want to do the editing, etc.

When the search results page is shown again, then the GIFs will show up nicely.
